  • feeding passage in a separate unit. The yard enjoys large areas of concrete and hard standing.
  • This Farmyard connects easily to the first block of land (Lot 1) via a super farm roadway which divides the lands into evenly based paddocks and runs to the bottom of the farm and the public road on one side and to the underpass connecting to Lot 2 on the other side.
  • LOT 2 79 ACRES This is an excellent block of ground laid out in 7 main divisions and benefiting from extensive farm roadways and a large farmyard.

  • Behind the farmyard in the adjoining fields stands a now derelict cut stone cottage which offers potential for restoration to its former glory.
